The dust is settling....

It has been awhile since my last post. I have been engrossed in work and metalsmithing with little time left for much else.... The dust is now settling....

Our big kitty had surgery to remove his 'wubby'. It went very well, and the 'wubby' was completely removed. The histopathology report showed that the cancer had moved into the lymphatic system, so the report noted that 'clear margins' were not reached. Essentially, it is difficult to say that all the cancer had been removed. We were given a handful of options like chemo and radiation, but we felt it better with his age that we should not put our boy through chemo or radiation. I just need to keep a watchful eye for any new 'wubbies', and he gets to have wellness check ups every three months for a while. He definitely does not act like 'cancer Kitten', so that is a good sign. Each day he playfully runs through the house chasing his Andy friend.

My etsy shop did well in June - so a big shout out to all my customers, THANK YOU! Those orders helped with the vet bills. So far, July has been very slow again in the shop. I am hoping that it will pick up. I still try to work a few hours each night on my metalsmithing. Creating new pieces that someone will see and love.

DH has been very busy for the last four weeks (working like 12-14 hour days) on a project that has a drop date of this Wednesday. He has been stressed galore! I will be glad when he can get back to a more normal schedule.

I started a Flickr account yesterday while taking a 'sick day'. I woke up feeling under the weather. I took some cold medicine and while waiting for it to kick in (and make me sleepy), I opened a Flickr account. I have wanted to open one for awhile, but I never took the time to set it up. If you are interested in viewing what I have set up so far, please visit this link:

I will leave you with one of my creations that I am very proud of. I listed it last week in my shop, and it sold the same day.

Till next time!
